Just Perfect, indeed

What a great listen. Characters you can both believe in and empathise with. A storyline full of clever twists and turns. Christmas spirit in abundance. All set in the beautiful surroundings of the Cornish coast. Another winner from Phillipa Ashley designed to fill you perfectly full of Christmas spirit

Not for me!

I just couldn't get into this one. The story line was a bit weak and the romance was corny (just my opinion). I stopped listening after hearing several chapters.

Enjoyed the story but not the narrator

Loved the story. I wish the narrator used slightly different voices for the characters so it would've been easier to understand who was speaking.
